Blue Saturday

I`ve been doing some work with my fabric scraps, focusing on blue this month (not light, light blues or green-blues, or dark/navy blues; just blue blues) with the Rainbow Scrap Challenge.

Eight scrappy log cabins with black/white prints for contrast. Each of the blocks finish at 8.5 inches, so four will finish into a 16x16 inch block.  I have lots more blue so I may do four more of the 8.5’s so I can have three big blue ones. And then I will do a few of these with each color of the month.

Off to work on my Bright Birch Trees quilt for my grandson. That is the name of the pattern, but the quilt will be renamed as it will be in shades of grays, pale blues/greens, ecru, etc. At least the background will. The trees themselves will have a bit more color. I will have to see how it looks as construction begins....

Linking up (hopefully; the new software keeps throwing me for loops) to ScrapHappy Saturday at So Scrappy.

Great background fabrics. Looks like you've used up quite a bit of blue already. Good start!

Log cabins in blues are always so pretty.
